The yaSSL Embedded Web Server is a fast, embeddable, and easy-to-configure Web server with a strong focus on portability and security. The Web server offers SSL/TLS (HTTPS) support built-in through the CyaSSL embedded SSL Library. With a footprint size of less than 100kB with SSL enabled (or 40kB without SSL) and a simple and clean API, the yaSSL Embedded Web Server was designed to fit perfectly into resource-constrained embedded environments. While maintaining a small size and fast speeds, the yaSSL Embedded Web Server offers a full feature set to give you the maximum amount of freedom and flexibility when developing your project.
BitNami MAPPStack is an easy-to-install, ready-to-run binary distribution of Apache, PostgreSQL, and PHP, including the phpPgAdmin tool. It runs in Mac OS X and allows you to quickly setup a development or production Web application environment. BitNami Stacks are easy to install, independent, integrated, and relocatable.
Arachnida is an embeddable Web server. It uses the OpenSSL library and consists of a small framework for networking that allows you to asynchronously accept and handle connections using a "new connection handler" to handle new connections and a "data handler" to handle incoming data. This makes it possible to add support for any TCP/IP based protocol by just adding a handler. A test suite is included.
Shttp is a simple, partial HTTP/1.1 implementation built using the ServerKit framework. It's a little over 1000 lines of code, and serves well as a minimal lightweight HTTP server in closed/controlled/static content settings, as well as a learning tool for those interested in developing TCP-service-providing modules using ServerKit. Illustrating how easy it is to build efficient server programs using ServerKit, this module has demonstrated 7200 requests/second in AB benchmarks.
The CyaSSL embedded SSL library is a lightweight SSL library written in ANSI C and targeted for embedded and RTOS environments, primarily because of its small size, speed, and feature set. It is commonly used in standard operating environments and cloud services as well because of its royalty-free pricing and excellent cross platform support. CyaSSL supports industry standards up to the current TLS 1.2 and DTLS 1.2 levels, is up to 20 times smaller than OpenSSL, and offers progressive ciphers such as HC-128, RABBIT, and NTRU.
KLone is a fully-featured, multi-platform framework which allows dynamic Web pages to be written in C/C++ (with the usual <% /* code */ %> style). The pages can then be embedded (in compressed and/or encrypted form) into a single executable that also contains KLone's high-performance HTTP/S server. Given its nature, it can be linked natively to any C/C++ library (database, XML, graphics, etc.), without an intermediate layer, and it is especially suited for low-resource (embedded) systems.
Wt is a C++ library for developing Web applications with an API that is widget-centric and inspired by existing C++ graphical user interface APIs. To the developer, it offers abstraction of Web-specific implementation details, increasing the accessibility and portability. Under the hood, the library uses the latest techniques (HTML5, Ajax, WebSockets) to handle user events and update the Web page.
Tntnet is a Web application server for generating Web applications in C++. HTML pages with some additional tags for inclusion of C++ code are compiled into shared libraries and served from tntnet. It resembles PHP, JSP, or Mason, but the programming language used is C++, and the pages are compiled into native code before serving. Tntnet is fully multithreaded and supports HTTP keep-alive for best performance. Its dynamic pages are faster than static pages with other Web servers, while creating Web applications is simple.
Cymbeline is an Python application server framework that includes functionality such as database and arbitrary object pooling, Web servers (including SSL), a persistent object repository, and a text console. It was originally designed as an administrative shell for an embedded system, but has since morphed into a more general purpose, run anywhere toolkit.
